Liberation is possible just by looking at an image of the Buddha, called in Tibetan ‘mthong sgrol’ «Liberation [through mere] seeing». Buddhist art is able to transmit blessings, or the inspiration of great masters. “. . . if you have the inner experience of what the image symbolizes, every time you see a Mahayana painting, a deep positive imprint is placed upon your mind, and you receive transcendental wisdom. In fact, these paintings are talking to you, beyond words.” Lama Yeshe
